Aqueon 100540436 First Impressions

Great product.

I thought that U had put it together wrong so I took it all apart and started over. If that does not work, look into silicone grease so you can lube the impeller. Firstly, I'd recommend taking the motor apart and putting it back together. You'll want to pull that water from the bottom. Early on it seems to be working as advertised. There is a sound from the water shooting into the tank! Once I found that, the world was right again.

Aqueon 100540436 Final Thoughts


They are simply the best design for nitrifying bacteria to grow on. So, easy is good, both for us and our fish. I've been researching so many things on how to take care of them. My baby turtle even loves it so much he won't let go. SO, I sat down and read EVERY little thing in rhe instructions. Also price was very reasonable and shipping was fast. My box came in good condition, parts where in tact and new.
